Confirmed: Leeds United under-21 line-up v Leicester City - Dawson, Phillips feature

Elland Road Revie Stand

Here is the Leeds United under-21 side to play Leicester in the Premier League Cup.

Leeds United under-21s: Grimes, Booker, Skelton, Thompson, C Taylor, Purver, Phillips, Sloth, Dawson, Parkin, Montenegro

Subs: Atkinson, Denton, Stokes, Mulhern, Bennett

Leeds United’s under-21 side go into the Premier League Cup game against Leicester City with a point to prove.

The young Whites have played well in this competition so far this season but they’ll feel annoyed that they have let their lead slip in the Northern Group of the under-21 Professional Development League.

It’s a chance to forget about the responsibilities of playing in the league temporarily, with emphasis falling onto the cup game, which presents the youngsters with a unique chance.

It’s a chance to impress first team boss Neil Redfearn who has a close relationship with the youth ranks at Elland Road, due to the good work he did when he was in charge of the academy.

Leeds have one of the best attacks around in under-21 football at the moment and they need to be firing on all cylinders this evening.
